Only Hearts tulip wrap dress

This tulip print dress is probably my first purchase from Anthropologie from many years ago and it gets a ton of use.  Loving these new wedges found by Sydney, just the perfect two tone summer shoe I'd been looking for!  Thanks S!

What's in my bag

This is for Grechen who tagged me for a "what's in my bag" post!  For the past few years, I've always carried a huge bag with everything you could possibly need but after my back protested from lugging 20lbs worth of snacks and bug spray around, I switched to smaller crossbody bags and haven't looked back since. 

This vintage Bottega is my favorite right now (via Moss).  In it, I have a LV pocket agenda that I use for a wallet (also via Moss), a Sharpie pen (the best!), gum, mints (addicted), Lactaid pills, chapstick, and keys.

Missing in the picture is my iphone (which I used to take this picture) and my requisite granola bar (which I already ate for the day--whoops!)

High low hem

High low hems are popular this season and while I can't do the short versions (too 80s, too mullet like, you can see my knees!), I think it's a fun trend on maxi dresses.  I spent the whole day swishing around work--every girl needs to wear a dress with a train on a non wedding day!

Mine! Mine! Mine!  I finally managed to snag this gorgeous dress on a popback in the wee hours of the morning this week.  Can't wait for it to arrive!  Have you had any great buys recently?

Jcrew gardenshade floral Lillian

I finally got to break out the Lillian dress for a date night this past weekend.  I love everything about this dress--the shape, the fabric and the fact that it didn't wrinkle at all!  The fit at Jcrew has been so on for me lately--I hope they do this dress in more colors!

Tea length

Since these Matt Bernson wedges are 4 inches tall, I took the opportunity to wear all my long length skirts with them in hopes of not looking too frumpy.  I love this Jcrew liquid silk skirt and though it could probably use a hemming, I love the feel of the fabric as it swishes when I walk.  Have a great weekend!

Madewell Parklane

I was drawn to this Madewell dress by its simple tank shape and drapey silk fabric.  I had originally wishlisted the striped version but I think this black one will be more versatile - perfect for work and for the weekends.  I know I say that about most of my dresses but I really do mean it this time! :)

Spring uniform

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of nude sandals and am so happy with these Matt Bernson wedges.  The leather is soft, the footbed is well cushioned and the platform helps lessen the impact of the 4 inch heel!  I'll be wearing these all week so I'll report back later on the comfort factor for every day wear.  Fingers crossed!
